THE NEW MASTERSOUNDS RETURN TO THE U.S., PLAY FUJI ROCK
The New Mastersounds return to U.S. soil to seduce the masses with their infectious grooves and unmistakable funk. Feeding off the energy of their last U.S. appearance during New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival the entitled "Kings of Late Night" return to shake up dance floors all over the States.
After a first stop is in NYC for a Rocks Off Concert Cruise, NMS brings their high energy funk out West! While in California, The New Mastersounds will be making a rare club appearance at Hop Monk Tavern in Sebastopol on July 16. It will prove to be an epic not to be missed event! NMS will headline 10,000 Lakes Festival in Minnesota on July 23 before heading to Japan to headline the Field of Heaven Stage for their first ever appearance at the Fuji Rock Festival. This popular summer festival also hosts such acts as Spoon, Bootsy Collins, Gogol Bordello, Bloc Party, Grand Master Flash, and many more top performers. NMS will then return for one more date in the U.S. at the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY on July 27 to finish the July tour, stay tuned for August.
As The New Mastersounds take the stage during their summer tour, they promise to give a healthy glimpse of new material to be seen on their latest album due for U.S. release in late 2008. Their ever-evolving sound brings about the true soulfulness of funk and when on stage, NMS manipulates and experiments with these sounds giving their audience a live music experience to which few can be compared.
The band comments, "The U.S. audience has a kind of intelligence and attention to detail, so you can do things with the music and you know it's not passing people by and going over their heads. You can feel it emotionally. The essence of what our live show is about, is us having fun and then being able to generate that fun for other people... creating a kind of energy transference."
